Catering A Party? Try These Two Scrumptious Vegan Potato Dishes

Virginia Caballero

Catering a party for vegans can be challenging if you're not vegan yourself. So many recipes that you'd think would be vegan actually call for eggs, milk, or cheese. Potatoes are a great choice when you're catering vegan parties since they're filling and appeal to a wide array of tastes. Here are two vegan potato recipes that are sure to please palates.

Vegan Mashed Potato Casserole

Mashed potatoes don't have to be loaded with butter and milk to be delicious. This recipe has you layer the mashed potatoes with some delicious veggies in a baking pan. The resulting dish is easy to serve (straight out of the pan) and very filling. You could serve this as a side or a main dish. One recipe makes about 15 main dish servings or 30 side dish servings.

Ingredients:

  • 6 pounds  white potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups broccoli florettes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes, and boil for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain the potatoes. Add vegetable stock, soy milk, seasoned salt, and black pepper to the pot, and the use a hand mixer to mash the potatoes until creamy. Spread the potatoes into a large baking dish (or two smaller baking dishes). Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the mushrooms, onions, broccoli, and garlic, and saute until tender. Spread the veggies over the potato mixture, and sprinkle with the fresh rosemary. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes, and serve.

3-Herb Roasted Potatoes

These crispy roasted potatoes could not be simpler to make. They're wonderful served on the side of a dinner salad or vegan burger. The recipe makes enough for about 20 people.

Ingredients:

  • 5 pounds red potatoes, quartered with skins left on
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried mustard

Spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet. Drizzle them with the olive oil, and then sprinkle on the remaining ingredients. Roast at 375 F for 45 minutes, turning over twice during baking. Serve immediately while warm.

This blog is all about making your restaurant a little bit better--one change at a time. You never know, the changed you make today might become the profits that you will make tomorrow.
